I have been tringto make figurines for a cake topper and every time I they fall apart. What type of glue dose every one use to attach the arms and what type of suport does everyone use. I am tring to make a golfer and a mermaid.
Any help would be great.
Small wooden skewers are great to make things stand up I use those in my numbers all the time. As far as glue. When I am attaching fondant to fondant, I use water or an extract. Toothpicks are also great. I have seen people use wires to run through the body for legs and arms. I just use toothpicks. I just finished Pat Pat rocket and I used toothpicks to construct it. It is in my pictures if you want to see that.
I use pieces of spaghetti to connect arms and legs and heads, or toothpicks sometimes. I use water or egg white as glue to attach.
